Jeremy McWilliams has made history with victory in the second Supertwin race at the 2019 North West 200 ahead of Christian Elkin and Michael Rutter.

Rutter made quick progress on the opening lap of the four-lap contest, with opening Supertwin winner Stefan Bonetti highsiding off early, McWilliams charged in pursuit of the Bathams KMR Kawasaki rider with Elkin in his slipstream.

By Lap 2 McWilliams drafted ahead of Rutter using the slipstream before setting a strong pace to build a gap at the front, while Elkin also got the better of Rutter, and despite his best efforts the former Grand Prix racer kept clear for a famous victory.

McWilliams claims his third career win at NW200 at the age of 55-years-old to give Ryan Farquhar a crowning glory at the event for the KMR Bayview Hotel Kawasaki team.

With Elkin taking second place comfortably ahead of Rutter, Matthew Rees grabbed fourth place with Joseph Loughlin completing the top five.

Irwin, who won the earlier Superbike race, did not contest the Supertwin race for KTS Racing Kawasaki due to a suspected technical issue.
